PRC Defense Ministry: US efforts to contain China through military assistance to Taiwan are nonsense

Asia (bbabo.net), - The representative of the Ministry of Defense of the People's Republic of China, Wu Qian, called the attempts to restrain the development of China by supplying Americans with their weapons to Taiwan as nonsense of an imbecile. This was announced today, November 24, TASS reports.

So the representative of the Chinese military department commented on the call of the US-Chinese commission in the field of economics and security under the US Congress to additionally finance and strengthen the defense of the island.

“Taiwan belongs to China and is its sacred and inalienable part. Any strengthening of military ties between the United States and Taiwan is an erroneous act of interference in China's internal affairs and a violation by the American side of its obligations. Any attempt to contain mainland China by arming Taiwan is foolishness,” Wu Qian said.

Anyone who harbors such ideas, he said, "will run into the great steel wall of the People's Liberation Army of China and break his head."

On Nov. 15, the U.S.-China Economic and Security Commission of the U.S. Congress released a report calling on U.S. lawmakers to pass legislation requiring the executive branch to set up a standing interagency committee to develop plans for sanctions in response to China's hypothetical attack on Taiwan. The commission also called for additional multi-year funding for Taiwan's defense and other mechanisms to strengthen the island's security.
